Ear Surgery

Otoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to correct the shape and size of the ears. Ear aesthetics can be applied to any ear with problem in shape, but it is mostly applied to prominent ear problems. Although prominent ear may seem a minor problem, it can cause serious self-esteem problems in both children and adults and they may always try to hide their ears.
